From September 8-16, IBM is sponsoring a nine-day summit at Start in London to convene business, industry, and academic thought leaders to discuss challenges and next steps to enable economic, environmental and societal sustainability.

Below are some of the videos and photos at the event and a few other links if you'd like to follow the online conversation.
